    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Hi,
Mine is a combo of microwave and oven.
Microwave has the following error codes F1E5 and F6E0. But the funny thing is that it says that no faulty error detected.
Currently a technician attempted to fix the problem multiple times - replaced an appliance manager, a control board, an inverter, and a magnetron , but still the microwave doesn't work. He said this would be a very unusual case. Only option left is to check the wire and a bracket, which will cost a thousand dollars and even no guarantee to fix the problem.
Is there anyone that has the same issue and any luck to fix the problem?

Any advice would be appreciated.

OK that doesn't sound right. After the new part is installed you need to go back into service mode and clear the error codes. Wire? Bracket? Thousands of dollars? He's obviously missing something.
